Yesterday, The Girl told me she finished Ivy & Bean Break the Fossil Record in two days. Later in the evening, she asked if she could write for a few minutes in bed before lights out, and of course, I agreed. When I went to bed a few hours later, a piece of notebook paper with her review was sitting on my pillow. How cute!
As I haven't read this one myself, I can't comment on the book. However, I do know that it's the third book in the Ivy & Bean series, and The Girl hasn't yet read the first book, though she owns it. Reading them out of order didn't seem to affect her enjoyment.

This book is about two little girls named Ivy and Bean. Bean was in class one day. She was bored out of her mind. The teacher gave her a book called "The Amazing Book of World Records."
Ivy and Bean looked at the book together. They wanted to break a record. They tried many things, only 1 worked. They broke the fossil record. I liked the part when Ivy tried putting straws in Bean's mouth.
Disclosure: The Girl received a copy of Ivy & Bean Break the Fossil Record as a gift.
